But unlike the Dome, ukgovcamp is about content and people, giving up their Saturday to talk, listen and think about how digital is changing the way government works in the UK. Those conversations start long before the event, and continue long afterwards, stimulating new ideas, projects and get-togethers, including via the monthly TeaCamp. In a nutshell, ukgovcamp is an unconference, or a conference without a predefined agenda, where the sessions are proposed and agreed at the start of the day. They re posted as a big grid on the wall for the participants to choose from, and there s plenty of time for the informal hallway chats which, let s face it, are the best bit of any conference.London,Saturday 22 January It s run to the rules of open space events, where the Law of Two Feet applies: people2011 move freely between sessions which interest them, tweeting, blogging, snapping and filming as they go. What emerges is always a high-energy, dynamic event which leaves people buzzing with new ideas and connections.@ukgovcamp Set up by volunteers, the first ukgovcamp took place in January 2008, and there have been#ukgc11 two more since, each one bigger and livelier than the last. The 2011 event will be massive: almost twice as big as 2010, with the first tranche of tickets already snapped up in a hours.dave@moreopen.org020 3012 1024Venue: Microsoft UK,100 Victoria St, SW1E 5JL
